Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh joined a peaceful protest against police brutality in Ann Arbor, Mich., on Tuesday.

Harbaugh, who wore a maize and blue mask, marched with protesters, Ann Arbor mayor Christopher Taylor, police chief Michael Cox and Washtenaw County Sheriff Jerry Clayton, according to MLive.com.

MLive.com reports Michigan basketball player Isaiah Livers and a few members of the football team joined the rally. Harbaugh broke his Twitter silence Monday to express his views on the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who died in police custody after an officer kneeled on his neck for more than eight minutes.

"I believe in equal justice for all," Harbaugh tweeted. "All injustice should be confronted and punished. It has to be equal and fair for all, and no one can be above the law. I pray we can get there!"

Harbaugh is entering his sixth season as Michigan’s football coach.
